Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Another Tooth Saga

I was letting Amelia play outside like we used to do growing up. I was looking through the window every few minutes as I put away laundry and cleaned the kitchen. She was having fun throwing her stuffed cat up in the air and then trying to get it out of the tree by jumping or climbing. Well, then the cat landed a little too out of reach and she decided to throw rocks at it to dislodge it. And one of the rocks came back down and landed on her mouth.

I thought at first she just had a busted lip. But then when she was brushing her teeth before bed I noticed a small chip in the center of her front left tooth. It was pretty sharp to the touch so I called the dentist this morning and they got us in at 4:30 pm. They confirmed there was no crack going up towards the gum, as I had feared, and they filed it down so it's not so sharp. (And it's barely noticeable really.) So now we are just watching for an abscess as it all heals. Poor girl.

While we were at the dentist, Dr. Angie confirmed that Amelia's bottom tooth is loose. So my baby is definitely growing up!
